Family dinner. Crab cakes, steak, pasta alfredo. Actually didn't like the fried green tomatoes. I'd go back but it was a bit expensive.

What a great place to go for lunch or dinner. Staff are very friendly, menu is good, prices are reasonable. Sit out on the patio, enjoy a drink, watch the surfers, couldn't 9am for more.

Oceanfront dining at it's finest. Enjoy a wide selection of hand cut steaks, fresh island seafood, and the house specialties. A locals favorite since 2006.
